The ministry has extended an invitation to key professional bodies, including the Institute of Supply Chain and Materials Management, Export Development Board, Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka Shipping Council, Sri Lanka Ports Authority, Sri Lanka Freight Forwarders Association, Board of Investment, Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, Sri Lanka Air Cargo Association, Organisation for Professional Association, Ceylon Shipping Corporation, Representation of Armed Forces of Logistics Professionals, Ceylon Association of Shipping Agents, Sri Lanka Logistics and Freight Forwarders Association, Sri Lanka Customs and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, to join a knowledge-sharing discussion on 6 August at 11.30 a.m. at the Megapolis Ministry in Battaramulla.
